WIP Wednesday 25.04.2012

Well, Wednesday is here again and time to show all of my progress. All my projects have seen some progress this week and, in honour of Theme-a-licious:April Amazons, I will again show them in order of finished size.

Rose Clan Dress Tartan Rug
One end is starting to look like a tartan even if the rest just looks like stripes.

Hoodie for Me - Dawg by Drew Emborsky
I decided to show all the pieces this week, although it was quite difficult to get them all in frame. The second sleeve is almost finished but then I have to figure out what I'm going to do about the hood and the pocket as I don't have enough yarn to make those. I think I need to order a couple more balls.

Daffodil Teacloth
I kept forgetting whether I was working on the 4th or 5th segment of this but it all became clear when I pulled it all out of the bag. Progress is a bit slow but that to be expected when working with such fine cotton.

Squares in Squares Blanket
I almost forgot to take a photo of this one and ended up having to use the flash as it was getting quite dark by the time I remembered. I'm quite pleased with how this is working out, the increases must be good as it's still sitting flat.

Crochenit Cot Blanket
Another change of colour. I was originally planning on working in one colour until it ran out but I think I underestimated how much yarn was in each ball and I would have ended up with one or 2 colours dominating the blanket.

Slanted Scarf
Just a few more rows have been added to this one. If it weren't for the colour changes in the yarn it would be almost impossible to see the progress.

Toddler's Jacket - Zoom by Ellen Gormley
Still working on the first sleeve.

Men's Afghan Stitch Gloves
Started working on the back of the left glove this week. With the temperatures cooling down quite quickly here I really need to have these finished.

Sue is busy working on another bunting but she hasn't given it to me for photographing yet. She is also working on another matinee jacket but she hasn't let me photograph that one either.

That's it from me. Checkout Tami's Amis, Ginny's Yarn Along, Nicole's Keep Calm, Craft On and Ambassador Crochet to see what everyone else is making.



  1. That Dress Tartan is going to have a LOT of ends to weave in, isn't it? It must be very satisfying to work on now that the pattern is appearing...rather quickly, yes?

    If you don't have enough yarn for the pocket and hood on the hoodie, I'd work the hood first. I'm not a huge fan of those pockets, we all really need more bulk over our tummies? =) Plus, I think a contrasting pocket, if it comes to that, would look better than a contrasting hood.

  3. The tartan rug is starting to look very cool! It's interesting the way you achieve the pattern!

  4. So many lovely things - that tea cloth is just beautiful!

  5. Still loving that slanted scarf. The yarn makes it perfect!
